RETIREMENT AND INSURANCE FUNDS
Retirement and Insurance Funds | An excellent way to donate to a charity is by naming it as the ultimate beneficiary (after your death) of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.
If you leave your retirement fund, such as an IRA or 401(k), to your children, it will be subject to both estate tax and income tax. If you donate the retirement fund to NYF instead, upon your death, the fund will avoid income tax and estate taxes. Some donors leave less tax-vulnerable assets to their heirs and choose NYF as the ultimate beneficiary of their retirement plan or life insurance.
Designating NYF as the beneficiary of all or part of a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for its intended purpose can be an excellent donation, and may also provide you with substantial tax benefits.
It’s easy to do: Simply ask your retirement account manager or life insurance agent for a beneficiary designation form and name the Nepal Youth Foundation as the beneficiary. The entire transaction should take less than half an hour.
